The Finding Dory trailer from Disney D23 has yet to be released to the public but numerous reports have already spilled the beans on what we can expect from the fish-filled movie. Dory voice actress Ellen DeGeneres has now confirmed previous rumors that the Pixar movie will ultimately tell people that fishes should be freed in the ocean.
?I think that fish should be in the ocean,? DeGeneres told Yahoo! News in an interview. ?It?s what this whole sequel is about: It?s about rehabilitation and putting them back in the ocean? And we have to protect our oceans.?
This sequel seems to be more than a cute flick that aims to charm us with its unique characters starting from the forgetful fish (Dory), an octopus with a missing leg (Hank), and a White Beluga Whale who thinks his lump on his head was caused by a head injury.
Blackfish Movie Inspired The Film?
Previous rumors point that the story was largely inspired by the Blackfish Documentary which tells the controversy on the over-captive of killer whales. Further proof that the Pixar film is inspired by this true documentary is DeGeneres? statement saying that she wants the movie to encourage people to care for the aquatic life.
?Hopefully that discussion starts with this film, because we really need to protect that environment,? she said.
Finding Dory tells the story of the titular character finding her family with the help of Nemo and Marlin. Dory however gets separated from the two and ends up in an ocean sanctuary facility where wounded animals are treated.
Nemo Voice Actor Replaced?
Nemo?s appearance in Finding Dory has already been confirmed as?EW?reported?that the Disney D23 trailer shows the famous clown fish being together with his dad. To enable Nemo to retain his childish voice, previous voice actor for Nemo, Alexander Gould, has been replaced with Hayden Rolence, Crossmap reported. This is because Gould?s voice has already gotten deeper since Finding Nemo released in 2003.
Finding Dory will hit the big screen on June 17, 2016. The sequel to Finding Nemo is just one of the many exciting Disney and Pixar movies announced at Disney D23.
